Pay Attention to MEEE!

Okay, so here it goes...

I had a bunch of entertaining thoughts to write about... but I forgot what they were... lol, go figure, I'm blonde.

So anyway, July 4th...

My apartment building is on Main St... and Main St. is the place to be at 10 a.m. every year July 4th... well, only if you live in Schertz, otherwise, anything else would be more entertaining....

We get the joy of having a parade go down the street..... whoopie!

Well, this year it was raining (very strange weather this year.....) I was under my umbrella, and out of nowhere... silly string is being sprayed at me... 2 of my 3 cousins had attacked me... so I take off running after them, and tackle one and steal his can... then Boyfriend got me in the face with MORE silly string..... by then I drop my umbrella, lose my flip flops, and am running after him spraying him back... needless to say, the parade was entertaining... although I don't remember much of said parade.

well anyway, after all the silly string fights with friends and family, I went back into my apartment to change out of my wet clothes.... hung out a bit and vegged..

Well, I get a call from my Gramma, who tells me she's going to be out tonight so I'd have to come up with something to eat myself... okay I thought... weird reason to call me.... so I asked where she was going, where she then informs me that she's going to go to the hospital because one of my cousin's has been shot.

That'd put a wet towel on anyones fireworks...

Evidently he was set up... went to one of his old friend's house, when he walked in, as soon as the guy heard my cousins voice, kicked open the closet door that he was hiding in, shot him... ran out the back door where the dozen other kids were, pointed the gun at all of them before getting into his car and leaving.

Now that I've officially made anyone reading this uncomfortable, I'll let you know that he's alive. Wounds include loss of a kidney, his spleen, part of his stomach, has a hole in his liver, and a small lower part of his right lung is slightly collapsed... but he's alive. And they think the might have a little bit of internal bleeding, but they haven't made mention of it being super serious, they seem to be very on top of things.

They finally caught the guy that shot him yesterday. Arrested him on attempted murder.

Well, I can't let my cousin be the center of attention forever, so today we went to go visit him... he was still unconscious for the most part... tubes everywhere... wrists were restrained so that he won't pull the tube out of his throat... blah blah blah... well my gramma starts talking to him... where he started to wake up...

Side note: I don't do hospitals... they make me uneasy...

Well when I saw him wake up, I became very uneasy... almost like I couldn't get any air... well visiting hours were over so we started to leave.. I started feeling a bit dizzy but figured it'd go away... then about 10 steps later, I'm grabbing onto my gramma, and walls and looking for somewhere to sit down... then every color around me became very vibrant... greens, yellows, reds... so many pretty pretty colors... and down I went.

I wasn't completely unconscious, but I couldn't open my eyes, my face and body felt very numb... I could hear people around me and became very confused as to how so many people got there... I didn't remember that many people around me before... lots of people messing with me... one holding my back in a reclined position, but not completely laying down... and someone kept pulling my legs straight which really kept pissing me off... remember, my eyes are closed and I'm still not really conscious... but I didn't want my legs straight... I started realizing they thought I was completely unconscious so I fought to open my eyes a bit here and there... I finally started coming to, I was still pissed at the person who kept pulling my legs straight... I realize I have about 7 people hovering around me at least...

Well they brought me an assortment of chairs... finally a wheelchair was brought which I gratefully accepted (I always wanted to be rolled around in a wheelchair) I might also add I was in the complete center of a walkway... taking up the entire hallway (hey, I'm a relatively tall person for this part of the country)... they put a nurse with me for a while, they wanted to make sure I wasn't going to faint again... she kept bringing me these little orange juices... and then whipped out a straw... and some jello... it wouldn't have been as funny if she wasn't halfway done opening each item before asking if I even wanted it... I've also never had someone there to solely watch me eat and drink....... Hell I was getting more attention than my cousin, because I'm the most loved... ...

The nurse wheeled me all the way down the halls, through the hospital, in the elevator, outside as we waited for my gramma to get the car... And that was my day... so far at least.

So below is a picture of my cousin... although I never thought he looked right with a shaved head, but whatever... he's 19 years old... um... this was taken yesterday (July 5th), and he pretty much looks the same now...

So yesh... and tomorrow Boyfriend will be meeting my father for the first time :) so that should be fun....

Hmm... can't think of a whole lotta shtuff right now to say... kinda tired...

Oh, my cat experienced rain first hand today... his butt was wet for about an hour... water never seems to faze him... weirdo.

Okay, so that's all I can think of at the moment... just trying to stay caught up!

Thanks all...

Oh, and Gunner... Conceited has an "I" in it :) Unless that's not what you were saying... oh... also... good to see you around again :) 

.·:·.·:·.·:·.·

Damn Anime, Im sorry to hear about your loss...

I hope your family is able to get the justice they deserve....

 

I am Captain Conceted!! lol

Thanks dear... it really was weird...

Right before it happened, we found out that the guy who shot him was finally charged with attempted murder (he was only in jail on burglary and rape charges)... guess this means it'll be moved up to murder... honestly, I'm glad we're in Texas, and I hope he gets the death penalty, because if I see him on the streets... well... you already know. 

They're having the memorial tomorrow... I almost don't want to go because I already know how incredibly crazy crowded it's going to be... I feel bad though since I haven't seen him since the day I went to the hospital and fainted... I'm also pissed that my family didn't call me when they were informed his condition was deteriorating... they were at the hospital for an hour before he passed... and no one bothered to tell me until after.

.·:·.·:·.·:·.·

As of last night, he's out of the hospital and home........ evidently he was healing super fast, so what was supposed to be 2 months, turned into 2 weeks.... meh... go figure, he's like a cockroach.

There is a thin line between genius and insanity. I have erased that line, and replaced it with an apple.

 

You..dear...have the ability to make me cry and laugh in one sitting of reading your thoughts.

You also make me miss writing......much new gossip next door.

Best wishes for your cousin....he has a lot of recouping ahead of him.

 

If I was standing on a fish, I'd slip and fall......

Thank God he's ok..and i hope everything went well with your boyfriend and dad....

To err is human, to forgive divine

I'll put him in my prayers. Sorry to hear things are bad for you and your family.

hey anime, i think your plate is pretty full! the violence in this country just keeps getting closer and closer to home. well, my thoughts and prayers are with your family and particularly your boyfriend who will or has entered the portals of hell...meeting the father is usually pretty stressful...lol juliek j/k, i hope your cousin recovers quickly

Hey I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin. Sounds like he will pull through. You guys are in my prayers. So it looks like things are good with you and your boyfriend. No more cleaning grout huh? lol 

Sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope and pray that he will be okay, and you your family. I'm glad they caught the shooter. Things like this make me realize that things in my life aren't as bad as I tend to think. 

It does sound like he will be okay considering the hospital isn't making it sound serious (it is serious of course) but if it were very serious they would tell your family that.

Hang in there.

Holy crap!!!  Glad ta hear he's doing ok, all things considered.  Hang in there, I'm around if ya want to chat. 

 

"He sounds different. It's the only reason they can hear him at all."
